Wine Road Paws 4 Wine

Beth Costa on Apr 4, 2018

To all Wine Road wineries –

On June 23rd we are partnering with Canine Companions for Independence, to help them spread the word about their program, what they provide, who they provide dogs for, the types of volunteers they need and how people can be involved and help. We’re calling it Wine Road’s Paws 4 Wine.

I’d encourage you to read through their website. So many people are in need of this assistance, Canine Companions provide a true life support. There are numerous ways to be involved.

This is NOT a ticketed event, there are no RSVP lists etc. We are simply going to compile of list of wineries that are interested in donating some portion of their sales, for that one day to Canine Companions for Independence. Your winery would be listed in our press release and in our social media promotion for “Wine Road’s Paws 4 Wine”.

Our hope is to have 20-30 wineries offer some sort of donation to Canine Companions from wine sales that one day – be it $1 per tasting fee, a % from their total sales that day, or a % from one particular wine they designate for the day.
Collectively this will be a nice donation for Canine Companions, but BETTER YET it will give us a platform to inform your visitors about Canine Companions. They will also have 5-6 puppy trainers available to be at some of the wineries for a few hours that day. Everyone loves to see a puppy. This may also help them generate more donations, or find some new volunteers for their program.

We want to keep this simple.
Sign up via EVENTBRITE so we can just copy and paste what you write.
